The early signs of aging include fine lines and wrinkles across the brow and around the eyes and mouth. These developments are often referred to as dynamic wrinkles, given that they occur in areas that experience the most movement as the result of facial expression. Certain injectable solutions that temporarily relax the expressive muscles can quickly treat these fine lines and wrinkles. More advanced signs of aging, however, will require an alternative and more advanced solution. Facial fillers are currently being used to reverse volume loss, sagging and other age-related changes that can significantly diminish a person’s overall appearance. They are the perfect complement to other muscle-relaxing solutions and an excellent standalone procedure.
How Facial Fillers Work
Facial fillers hydrate the skin and provide additional structural support at the foundation level. As people grow older, collagenesis or natural collagen production gradually declines. This creates a breakdown in the structural integrity of the skin. Natural dermal fillers restore lost volume by binding to the skin cells and attracting water molecules, which produces a plumping effect that fills deep creases out. Other types of fillers are designed to effectively replace lost structural support and fill in creases and hollows across the visage with long-lasting results.
Most natural dermal fillers are largely comprised of an acid known as hyaluronic acid. This is found at the very deepest layers of the skin, where it bolsters and supports the dermis. These products provide fast yet temporary results. Given that the primary ingredient in natural fillers is inherently present within the body, these products are gradually recognized, broken down and absorbed. The good news is that these procedures can be safely repeated at our office as needed.
Which Aesthetic Issues Can Be Corrected with Dermal Fillers?
There are many aesthetic concerns that can be successfully addressed with dermal filler technologies. Facial fillers are commonly used to fill in deep, noticeable creases at the nasolabial folds. They can also be used to eliminate deep hollows under the eyes and at the cheeks, and to fill in certain types of scars for a smooth, even complexion.
Turning Back the Hands of Time with Facial Fillers
Facial filler injections are practically guaranteed to produce impressive results. Best of all, there are few after-effects and there is no extended recovery period. Within a very short period of time, these products can erase deep creases, hollows and other signs of severe facial wrinkling to create an attractive and far more youthful-looking visage.
